5 out of 5 eggsPlays Blue-Ray!

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Pays Blue-Ray without problem... Haven't tried all the other features like burning discs.

Cons: Still a bit pricey for any Blue-Ray drive... I would think they should be in the thirties like DVD drives... but STILL after years they are relatively expensive.

Other Thoughts: What else could I want.

2 out of 5 eggsDead within a year

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: It read BD's and DVD's for a year or so without problems.

Cons: It only worked for a year or so. I expect more for $68.99. I don't want to make any hasty condemnations, but I will certainly be reluctant to purchase another LG disc drive.

Other Thoughts: Windows recognized that the drive was there, but it wouldn't recognize any disks. I tried removing the driver to Add New Hardware, but the "new" hardware was never detected again, even after re-seating the power and known-good SATA cable. I dual-booted into Ubuntu 14.04 and it also did not recognize the drive.

Beyond the $50-70 expense for a BD drive, I find that it also costs ~$30 for BD player software to process through the DRM... better to just purchase a BD player for my TV for $70 ...

5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Reads & Burns fast and flawless combined with quality media and software pretty much every format. Smooth operation and sound levels acceptable.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have had this drive over 1-1/2 years and have burned hundreds of disks mostly blu-ray the only bad burns I did were due to bad media.
Would I recommend, yes.

1 out of 5 eggsWon't Read BR-DVD Movies

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: It's pretty black

Cons: It will not play my BR-DVD's I purchased it especially to play Blue Ray DVD's on my computer iis.t that what they do well this one starts as if it is going to play it then a message comes up on the screen "can not play display does not meet the system requirement for Blue-Ray

Other Thoughts: It also said check system for HDCP compatibility I do have a Nice Video card but there should be no problems I use Nero 2014 Platinum software

1 out of 5 eggsThe worst burner I've bought in 7yrs.

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Worked okay the first week or two but could tell it had a weak laser eye as it was not as responsive and smooth as it should've been.

Cons: I really didn't get to use this to burn but a couple of times before it started failing burns and then failing to read dvd's.

Other Thoughts: Tried cleaning it and updated the firmware but this not fix it.
It's clear my burner had a defective eye and it failed because of it.

2 out of 5 eggsNo way

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: I like the button. At first it all seemed fine. It plays DVD's and BD's. Then...

Cons: Then you find out you can't back up you BD's because of Cinavia in the player. Then it wouldn't recognize DVD blanks. Then the data BD's I made were full of errors. Just tried to burn a DVD and it said it wasn't empty, VSO Inspector and IsoBuster read it fine. Ended up using my 4 year old Optiarc. All in all, pretty disappointing.Here"s the good part. I paid $75 for it. Now it's $144 ? Must be twice as good..

Other Thoughts: I sure like that button, though.
I think I'll stick with DVD's.

4 out of 5 eggsJust works

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Reasonable price at the time.

Works as expected

Cons: I have not ran into any.

Other Thoughts: Really have not used it a lot. Just needed an optical drive to make images for USB sticks. Worked fine. At the time it was only about $20 than a blu-ray player so i splurged an got the burner

2 out of 5 eggsDied after 6 months

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Good value for speed

Cons: Not very robust

Other Thoughts: My WH14NS40 just died after 6 months. It no longer plays DVDs, has issues with audio CDs, but still does ok with data CDs. It may have died sooner, I havent tried to play a DVD in a while. I'm attempting to get it repaired through LG, hopefully it doesn't cost more than the drive.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't take your chances

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Nice Design, looks good in a case.

Cons: This drive functioned well at first, I only used it lightly for the first six months. It began to slow down and occasionally fail, Windows couldn't detect it. Time after time it failed, worked for a few days and failed again. It has been over a year now and it does not work at all. When opening the tray, the tray closes obnoxiously right away and when managing to put a disc inside of it, it sits there making a dreaded and continuous noise. This drive will make you go insane.

Other Thoughts: Got it as a gift, tried switching out Satas multiple times and no hope. At least get the warranty if the drive fits in your budget and there is no other alternative

2 out of 5 eggsNo Movies

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Seems like a decent player, if it did what it says.

Cons: Doesn't play DVDs or Blu Ray movies. I didn't spent $55.00 to just burn or read regular files. My last one was an ASUS and it worked fine. this one seemed to have more features beings my other one was 4 years old. Never worked but waited to long to request RMA. Sent emails to LG no response. Oh well only money. Did learn a good lesson though.
